Hoe about this.. Instead of a 'literal' game..
My co-developer suggested we make a minimal Linux OS (based off of Debian) and set it up to simulate fake hacking.
How does that sound?
It would still be a game, but would be so much cooler. >:3
The OS would be SOOPER light. And wpuld come with a custom set of 'hacking' tools. These 'tools' could also be installed on any other Linux os.
This is all theoretical, but we would love to hear your opinions.79
I want to run a theory by you regarding unit tests.
They make up for the time they cost to implement in the long run, no doubt, because when you're refactoring you can easily check whether you broke something.
But: what if you've got integration tests covering almost the entire codebase? For those to succeed the unit tests must succeed as well. So therefore imho the unit tests are redundant.
The only advantage of also having unit tests seems that they can pinpoint the issue more accurately.
Any other advantages? What am I missing? Any thoughts/comments?9
